I bought my Saturn Vue because we know we want to "add to our family" some day... Well I pictured myself trying to haul diapers, wipes, diaper bags, portable cribs or take-along baby swings in a little 4 door car with a closed in trunk.... Aaaaaannnnnd that didn't work so well for me. So I started researching the Saturn Vue and learned that the ones with a 2.2 engine get almost 25 mpg in town and almost 30 MPG on the highway! WOW! And it really does! Why settle for a little car that is going to leave us cramped for space when this SUV has it all and more??? It is very fun to drive and I got lucky and found one in "burnt orange" color --- looks awesome!
I have only owned my Saturn for about a month and it was about 128,000 miles on it, manual transmission. I have not had any problems with the transmission and it shifts very nicely. The stereo system isn't exactly one you would crank up and roll down the windows.... But I am a mom, I don't need a concert stereo system in my car. Mine is a base model, so I don't have the heated leather seats and what not, but the nice thing about having cloth seats is -- they're not cold when you get in the car anyway!
My only complaint that I really have, is that it is kind of a pain in the butt to unlock it. Almost every time I put the key into the door to open it, I have to wiggle the key back and forth and it doesn't want to open. So I bought a $36 unlock remote to get installed in it. Can't wait. And even though Saturn is no longer making cars, we can still get car parts from GM. If you don't want to drive a small car and be cramped for space, but can't afford an SUV that barely gets 8 mpg, then this is a great car! I am very happy with it.
